Make the most of the home you love.

Selling a home in today's economy is tougher than ever. Sophisticated buyers want their dollar to work harder to purchase high end details, modern amenities and style at every price point. I can help realtors and home sellers distinquish their properties from the competition. We can work together to showcase a home's strongest features and boost its appeal. Often, all a home needs is a little TLC and fresh eyes to bring out the beauty and charm that already exists.

In addition to the ISRP certification, I have a master's degree in counseling and years of business experience in the field of public relations. This translates into exceptional listening and communication skills, ensuring sellers needs and concerns are fully addressed. Putting a home up for sale is an emotional time, but is can also be exciting and invigorating! Rest assured, I will do everything I can to make this a positive experience.


Home staging occupied and unoccupied homes.
Relationships with professionals in fields of interior/exterior painting, plumbing, roofing, electrical and home maintenance.
Redesign of rooms using existing furnishings to provide ultimate function and style.
Consultations to real estate professionals seeking design input and recommendations.


I signed with a new client whose home had been on the market for months with little activity. She needed a quick sale and, due to her age and disabilities, was limited in resources. Susan worked with us to update the home with new paint colors, furniture and accessories. Not 48 hours later, we received an offer! My client was ecstatic. I'm a true believer in home staging!

I have an open concept living room/dining room and couldn't figure out how to make it flow without looking too busy. With four active kids, I also couldn't spend a lot of money. Susan came in and over a week, helped me declutter, rearrange and paint. She used accessories she found in my house that I forgot I even had and accompanied me on a mini shopping excursion to fill in what was missing. The experience was fun and affordable. Wish I hadn't waited so long!

Cindy, Spokane, WA

We had a major leak in our vacation home and needed to tear out everything. We had a very narrow window of time to get things replaced and called Susan in a panic. Over the phone and with internet, she was able to evaluate and make suggestions. Her choices were dead on. Everything came together better than we had imagined.
